McDonalds chip shortage

JAPANESE customers are on chip rations as industrial disputes on the United States west coast are causing french fry export shortages. 

Customers are being served small portions of the world famous chip as McDonald’s scrambles to secure supplies.

More than 1,000 tonnes of potatoes have been airlifted in and an emergency shipment of 1,600 tonnes is en route from the US east coast via an unusual sea route.


But the company said “this is not enough to offer a stable supply to customers” and for now it will only serve small portions of chips.
